Thomas Butler (Louisiana politician)
Butler was born near Carlisle, Pennsylvania. He was elected in a special election to finish the term of Thomas B. Robertson and was reelected to the Sixteenth Congress. He was later a member of the Whig party and of the American Party. He died in St. Louis.
Butler ran for Governor of Louisiana in the 1824 gubernatorial election but placed last with a mere 3% of the vote. In 1828 Butler again ran unsuccessfully for Governor, placing second behind fellow National Republican Pierre Derbigny.
